Morning thunderstorms

The cold front as expected has been lifting back to the north as a warm front and has sparked off some more showers and thunderstorms from areas around I-70 northward. These storms will continue lifting northeastward. They may produce some gusty winds and large hail as they move through. The SPC has issued a Severe Thunderstorm Watch for western Missouri and eastern Kansas as a result of these thunderstorms.

The SPC also has northern Missouri under a slight risk for severe weather, but the warm front is going to surge north into Iowa taking any thunderstorms with it, so this afternoon will become dry, sunny, warm, humid, and windy. Dewpoints will rise into the upper 60's with highs this afternoon in the upper 70's to low 80's. There was some concearn that the warm front wouldnt push as far north as predicted and leave us with a chance of thunderstorms through the afternoon, but I am confident it will push well into Iowa and Nebraska and eliminate any thunderstorm chance for the afternoon.

Our next chance for severe weather after this morning will be Tuesday afternoon ahead of our next cold front. Until then, expect the sun to come out this afternoon and it will become warm and humid. I will have a new entry around 1 Am tonight or Tuesday morning.
